CLiDE Standard

Extract structures from documents one by one


CLiDE Standard is a chemistry intelligent equivalent of an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software tool. Just as an OCR tool can recognize characters from scanned images of printed text, CLiDE Standard can recognize structures which can be exported into computer-readable file formats.

CLiDE Standard supports 'single structure at a time' extraction designed for the individual chemist.


  • Is an easy-to-use document viewer
  • Has a contemporary user interface modelled on Acrobat Reader
  • Opens documents of the following types:
    • PDF (Portable Document Format)
    • DOC (Word 2003)
    • DOCX (Word 2007 and 2010)
    • HTML (HyperText Markup Language)
  • Opens images files of several types, including
    • BMP (Bitmap Image File)
    • GIF (Graphical Interchange Format File)
    • JPEG, JPG, JPE, JIF (JPEG Image File)
    • PBM (Portable Bitmap Image)
    • PGM (Portable Greymap)
    • PNG (Portable Network Graphics)
    • PNM (Portable Any Map Image)
    • PPM (Portable Pixmap Image File)
    • TIFF, TIF (Tagged Image File Format)
    • XBM (X Windows Bitmap)
    • XPM (X Windows Pixmap)
  • Extracts structures from structure diagrams
  • Allows the extraction of one structure at a time
  • Detects interpretation errors
  • Chemical extraction can be done interactively via the user interface
  • Supports displaying super atoms in expanded and contracted form
  • Provides a set of options
    • to annotate structure parts e.g. non-interpreted atoms or valence-violated atoms
    • to control the recognition process
    • to select which chemical editor to use
    • to control the information saved into exported files
  • Supports structure editing directly via
    • ChemDraw
    • Accelrys Draw (formerly Symyx Draw and ISIS Draw)
    • Marvin Sketch
    This allows you to correct any recognition errors present in the extracted structures
  • Saves structures in the following formats:
    • MDL Molfile
    • MDL SDfile
    • MDL RGfile
    • CDX (ChemDraw)
    • CML (Chemical Markup Language)
    • MRV (ChemAxon Marvin Document)


Supported operating systems:

  • Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP
  • Mac OS X
  • Linux
